It seems like everyone's really liking the DX100's sound quality.
Was just wondering how the dac and amp on the DX100 compares with the Icon HDP? Or is the Icon HDP in a totally different class because it's a desktop amp? Was curious because I've heard many people say how the DX100 compares with many desktop rigs and that they can drive headphones like the HD800 well?
I'm currently using a Sansa fuze+/E11 combo. And was thinking of getting an iphone and going LOD to my amp instead. But then I'll have to convert all my flac files to alac, which I really don't want to do.
On the side I was thinking of getting the Nuforce Icon HDP for home use with my laptop.
For home I currently use the Senn HD558's, M50's, Shure DJ750 and Senn HD25.
I've also ordered a pair of the Miles Davis Monster IEM's, which are coming in the mail.
Somewhere in the near future I was thinking of upgrading to either an AKG Q701 or DT880. Or I might even go broke and go for the hd800 if I'm crazy enough. lol.
I'm pretty sure the DX100 would trump any Iphone LOD to E11 combo. But the DX100 is insanely pricey at $800. However, if it's sound quality and power rivals the Nuforce Icon HDP then I might actually be saving money if I just go for the DX100.
Any idea how the DAC and amp of the two compares?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thx for the help! =D
